Electricity

LP (Item 126082) Merge (UK), 2022 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold
(Yellow and black splatter vinyl. Includes the insert signed by the group.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Sonny Okosun

Liberation
Shanachie, 1984. Very Good+
US issue of some of Sonny's African recordings from the early 80s. The groove here is afro-pop, with crisp guitars and a lighter beat than Fela's style of afrobeat, but with similar cascading horn parts. The production's a bit slicker too, with the vocals pushed way forward in the mix. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prince Nico Mbarga & Rocafil Jazz

Free Education

Rounder, 1973. Very Good+
(Cover has a cut corner and light wear.) LP, Vinyl record album
World Pacific, Late 50s. Very Good+ Gatefold
The title tells it all – as Ravi delivers three long ragas, with backing on tabla and tamboura. A nice one to plug in and drop out to – with the 28 minute-long "Raga Jog", plus "Raga Simhendra Madhyaman" and "Raga Ahir Bhairav". LP, Vinyl record album

Lord Shorty

Endless Vibrations
Shorty (Trinidad & Tobago), 1974. Very Good+
(Cover has some edge & surface wear, ink stamp on back.) LP, Vinyl record album
Salut/BBE (UK), 1985. Sealed
A set of work from Lebanese composer Ihsan Al-Munzer, who you might know from his work with various vocalists – but a record that's all-instrumental, and which almost has the feel of an 80s sound library set overall! Tracks are heavy on keyboards – used in varying ways from cut to cut, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ravi Shankar & Alla Rakha

Ragas & Talas
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Good

Afriqua

Colored
R&S, 2019. Near Mint- 2LP
Afriqua's got a continental reference in his name, but a sound that's very forward-thinking overall – music that's supposedly inspired by classics from Roy Ayers, Quincy Jones, and Weldon Irvine – but which sounds completely different than those inspirations! Instead, Afriqua's sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soulphiction

State Of Euphoria
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2006. Near Mint- 2LP
One of the sweetest new artists we've heard on the Sonar Kollektiv label in a long long time – one who's working here in the more abstract mode that SK's been putting down of late, but who also manages to do so with the deeper soul that we first loved in the label years back! The style's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
